All opinions are mine alone. #WasteNoPaste #CollectiveBias As I was walking out to take Caitlin to school, I had to grab a sweater! Yay!! It’s fall and I am stoked! I love the gorgeous colors the leaves change to when that cooler air hits. When fall arrives, it is a time of year I make a lot of my favorite comfort foods. There is something about a chilly evening while I am eating a bowl of chili! Chilly equals chili! One of my favorite cold weather meals is my Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili Recipe.
There are so many reasons I love this recipe! It is so easy to make, it is versatile and it is a real crowd pleaser. I love that I can throw all the ingredients into my slow cooker. This is one of those dishes that the longer you cook it, the better the flavor. After 3-4 hours in the slow cooker, it is perfect! The whole house smells heavenly! I have to keep everyone away from tasting it until is is ready! It goes well with a salad and some crusty french bread from the bakery.
Because we are on a pretty tight budget, I hate to waste food. Because this recipe only calls for a small amount of tomato paste, I don’t need a whole can. After adding a few tablespoons to the slow cooker, I have almost a full can of paste left. So, I end up putting it in a container and placing it in the fridge. From there, it usually gets pushed to the back and forgotten. By then, it is usually spoiled, so I end up tossing it in the trash. What a waste! But waste no more, because I found the coolest product on a recent trip to Walmart.
Whenever a recipe called for tomato paste, my mom always used Hunt’s. She said it was a brand she trusted and was full of tomato flavor. Now that I am a mom, I have followed in my mom’s footsteps. For tomato paste, diced tomatoes, pasta sauce or ketchup, I also use Hunt’s. Their new product, Hunt’s Recipe Ready “Pre-measure 2TBS” Paste Pouches has made my life so much easier! No more wasting tomato paste when I cook! These convenient “Pre-measure 2TBS” paste pouches are absolutely brilliant!
When I make my Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili Recipe, I usually use four tablespoons of tomato paste. With the new “Pre-measure 2TBS” Paste Pouches, I use two pouches. Because I can store the remaining pouches in the pantry, I am not tossing leftover tomato paste. When I make my spaghetti sauce, I can just grab a pouch or two and I am good to go! Isn’t that clever? I love these babies! It really has changed the way I cook with tomato paste!
To make my Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili Recipe, you just need a handful of ingredients and your slow cooker! You will need:
- Three chicken breasts
- Two Hunt’s Recipe Ready “Pre-measure 2TBS” Paste Pouches
- Two cans of Hunt’s Petite Diced Tomatoes
- Three cans of white northern beans
- One can of diced green chilies
- Two cups of chicken stock
- Two tablespoons of chili powder
- Shredded cheese of your choice to garnish
- Sour cream to garnish
I usually cook the chicken in the chicken broth for the first two hours. When it is fork tender, I shred it. Next, I add the “Pre-measure 2TBS” Paste Pouches, Hunt’s Petite Diced Tomatoes, white northern beans, green chilies and chili powder. You will cook this for an additional hour. Top with your cheese and sour cream and serve with a green salad and crusty bread. Yum!
This recipe is perfect for so many occasions. If you have a new neighbor or a friend or family member with a new baby, this is a great meal to bring over. We have made this for church pot luck dinners, tailgating, camping and just about every weekend when the weather is cold. Seriously, this is a meal that is perfect for just about any reason at any time. The next time I make my Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili Recipe, I plan to share my new BFF; Hunt’s “Pre-measure 2TBS” Paste Pouches!
What is your go to meal you would use the new Hunt’s “Pre-measure 2TBS” Paste Pouches?

I have never made white chicken chili for myself. I had it at other peoples homes. This is simple enough that I could make a crock pot batch and freeze the rest since I am basically cooking for one these days.
Krista saysOctober 20, 2016 at 4:11 pm
When I woke up it was 19 degrees this morning! I decided that since it is so darn cold I needed a great “warm me up” dinner! Thanks for the wonderful idea!
Seattle Travel Blogger saysOctober 20, 2016 at 4:28 pm

I finally found the pouches and tried this recipe. It is so good. Right now when it is so cold… it is nice to have some comfort food waiting when you come inside again.
